Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Jorma K? Non-DEAD...

T'WAS me.I've seen Jorma solo,w Jack acoustic and w/ either a drummer and harmonica player still acoustic.Now we get to the electric. Yes the older Tuna were a tad better only because of where I saw them and generally they did marathon shows and when they said they'd be back and back they came . I do like Barry and his little guitars and mandolin fills.I really like when G.E. Smith joins in as 2nd lead and when you see them all smiling you know they are just locked in.Just as we discussed many times before generally there are curfews in every city and town so there are limits to their playing time.As for the Beacon shows I try to go every year missed this past weekend but was there for Jorma's 70th birthday gig. Many friends walked on and stayed for the night w/ the only break was to bring out a b-cake shaped as
a Les Paul.The guest from who I can remember were Pete Sears on piano,Steve Earle electric guitar, the Bass player from the Allman Bros.and Bob Weir who did a couple w/ a great Paint my Masterpiece.There were others and on the 1st night Warren Haynes joined in.If your an east coaster and want to see them in 2 really comfortable venues then go see them either at the Beacon or Count Basie Theaters.
